ABOUT US

We care about your safety:

- We take COVID seriously. We keep distance, wear masks, and common surfaces are cleaned regularly

- We are committed to creating an inclusive space where all are welcome.

El Pais Is truly a little gem in Tucson. It is a wildly fun, cool and unique retro motel and RV campgrounds. The fun decor and mid century clubhouse and patio give a lot of great space for hanging out. I loved the communal vibe there, they even made a big Thanksgiving dinner for everyone! That was so great to me as I was traveling alone. It was nice to come down to free coffee in the mornings, and sit around the fire pit at night. Toni was so great, I honestly can’t say enough good things about her and her hospitality. Due to my evolving itinerary, my plans changed several times and she was so flexible and kind with me. She always responded with grace and nothing but the most friendly and helpful manner. She even helped me back my trailer in, as a newbie some thing I was a little nervous about. All in all this was a super fun place to stay and I would go back to Tucson just to stay there. Highly highly recommend it!

I absolutely loved this hipcamp ! Toni is an amazing, energetic host. There was a slight problem with the sewer hook-up when we arrived, but Toni immediately found a solution and got us all hooked up. I loved all the colorful decorations and building decor and the great music she had playing. We had fresh chicken eggs daily, a movie was played on a large projector in the evenings and there was even free laundry. I felt very comfortable here and would most definitely go back again when we travel in that direction !!!

Toni was incredibly welcoming and worked to assure that our stay was problem-free. The nightly movies, daily coffee, free eggs, free laundry, pool, and comfortable communal environment at the “clubhouse” made this stay a great value.
They were clearly busy every day making continual improvements to the vintage busses and property generally. We’ll look forward to a future opportunity to visit the area.

Toni and all of the campers at El Pais welcomed me and my skoolie with open arms. They were so kind, respectful and fun! The clubhouse was decorated incredibly and everything was super clean. There’s even farm-fresh eggs available. 😀 I can’t say enough good things about this place. 10/10.

We arrived and were quickly greeted by Jade, Toni’s daughter. Very friendly, she gave us a brief rundown so we could get set up, it was a hot day. The spaces were perfect for what we needed and we had power, water and AC soon after we drove in. El Pais is special. You feel it when you arrive. The murals, the art installations, the chickens roaming around.. it has a great energy. We had hot showers, filtered water, laundry, coffee and free fresh eggs everyday. STAY HERE- you’ll be so glad you did!

I can’t say enough about this absolute GEM of a campground. I wish we could have stayed longer!

The decor, vintage pieces, outdoor patio, and clubhouse all have that charming retro vibe, and makes you feel like you took a Time Machine back to a more simple time. Everywhere you look, there’s something that catches your eye. Between the indoor artwork, outdoor murals, & numerous vintage items.

Every camper was wonderful; full of so much love and continued to be helpful, kind, and welcoming. At night we were able to sit out on the patio under the disco ball with our dogs, and some neighboring dogs came over for playtime while we chatted with their humans.

The host, Toni, helped us park & encouraged us to check our the vintage rvs which neighbored us.

Although this campground is small, it’s not short on love, culture, community. I would recommend this space to everyone, and can’t wait till we can find a time to come back 🚀🚌🌞
